Welcome to The Swallows Nest Homestead

We’re so glad you are here! Our goal is to share how we live and manage a handmade and homestead life and working toward being as self sufficient as we can.

Our Property the Day We Bought It

We are a family of 3 that had dreams of moving to the country. While searching for the “perfect” piece of land, we took the time to learn needed skills and made good use of them. We learned to grow some of our own food, preserve it, and cook with it.

In 2016, our dream finally became a reality; we’ve been working hard to build a house and a homestead since then while learning most things as we go. I hope you’ll join us on our journey and maybe even learn a thing or 2.

Our inspiration comes from the successes and mistakes of fellow bloggers and vloggers like Abundant Permaculture, Weed ‘Em and Reap, and Melissa K Norris. Learning comes from doing and watching these do-ers has given us the courage to go out and “do” for ourselves.

We will document and share our projects with you so that you can go and “do” too! Some of the topics we’ll focus on include gardening, cooking, DIY projects including skincare and woodworking, and our livestock which for now is just our mini dinosaurs, aka laying hens.

In the future, we hope to include meat birds, pigs, sheep, and bees as well. We have too many plans and ideas to share in this little space, so check back often and see what we’re up to!
